So the final version of Windows Live Essentials was released today. I see from this blog post by Chris Jones that apparently 95% of the bugs that were present in the beta version have been addressed by this final release.
I suppose it was inevitable that I would find myself continuing to be bitten by one of the remaining 5% of bugs.
This is unacceptable behaviour as far as I’m concerned. I can’t afford to have it running on my computers and introducing garbage into my image metadata.
